What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer, similar to Xeomin and Botox.
All 3 of these wrinkle relaxers have the same active ingredient, the differences are in their proteins. These proteins (or lack of) can make one treatment more effective than another for some people.
Dysport helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles beneath the skin. By relaxing the muscles treated, the skin above them is smoothed.
Is Dysport right for me?
Dysport is a great option for adults that are unhappy with dynamic wrinkles and aren’t seeing results from at home products. Dynamic wrinkles are those lines that form when you make certain facial expressions, like frowning or smiling.
Over time, those repeated facial expressions can cause us to look tired, or unhappy, and it is incredibly common for men and women to seek out an injectable wrinkle relaxer, like Dysport, to smooth out those offending lines and wrinkles.
Dysport is also a great wrinkle relaxer to opt for if you are not seeing the results you want from Botox, or Xeomin.
The most commonly treated areas are forehead and frown lines.
What is getting Dysport like?
The entire process takes about 45 minutes. Your provider will talk to you about your goals, what areas bother you, and what works best for your lifestyle.
It’s important to be informed, and your provider will answer as many questions as you have to make sure you are totally confident before moving forward with the treatment.
Next, your provider will have you make some silly faces, (so they can see those dynamic wrinkles), and they’ll mark the areas to be treated.
Pain from the injections themselves is minimal, although some areas are more sensitive than others. During the injections your provider will have you lay back, close your eyes, and relax!
Immediately following treatment you may have some redness, and very occasionally swelling or light bruising.
It’s best to avoid strenuous exercise that day, and to avoid laying down for the 3-4 hours immediately following the treatment. However, there’s no downtime, and you can immediately go back to your daily activities.
The average patient will see their results in about a week. You can expect for the areas treated to remain smooth for about 3 months.
